    This will be a thread showing the build of a Bally Evel Knievel. I'll be using a Bally Eight Ball as donor cabinet. I already have a new CPR playfield that I have just started populating.
    New rails made of painted solid oak
    Note - this machine is being built to sell. Contact me if interested.

    New switches at all stand ups

    Cutting the notch for the ball guide (in my oak rails) is not something I've had to do before, so I'll post pics here.
    First, I lined it up and marked the start/stop of the notch. I made sure it was same distance down from the top on each side.

    I cut sides of notch with table saw, and finished the end cut with multi tool and 1/4" chisel.
